With the popularity of the internet and the barrage of public videos uploaded onto countless sites online came something known as a viral video. Viral videos are videos in the internet that become so popular that even your grandmother has seen them. I have fallen victim to the lure of viral videos along with everyone else. The following are three of my favorites.
Top Three Viral Videos: Evolution of Dance
Judson Laipply is the genius behind this simple, yet hilarious, viral video. Judson is a physical comedian who has obviously spent too much time in clubs and at those lame weddings where everyone is expected to do ‘that dance’ that everyone knows, but you, to ‘that song’ that everyone appears to love, but you can’t stand. The video is hilarious because most of us know the songs and have, unfortunately, done the dances. However, the funniest thing about it is Judson’s ability to mock the ‘evolution of dance,’ while at the same time coming off as an obvious lover of dancing.

Top Three Viral Videos: David After Dentist
If you have an internet connection, you have probably already seen this video. David is a little boy who is having a rough time coming out of anesthesia while his father films him. Granted, you feel a little sorry for David, whose father should probably be hugging him and assuring him that he is going to be okay. However, the things that come out of David’s mouth are utterly hilarious. Therefore, I am ashamed to say that I am a little happy that David’s father is less attentive than he should be. If he were father of the year, I never would have had a chance to see David After Dentist.

Top Three Viral Videos: Where is Matt?
“Where is Matt?” is my favorite video on this list. It is funny, it is inspirational and the background music makes me want to do exactly what Matt is doing. You may be wondering what exactly Matt is doing. Well, it is hard to explain. He is sort of dancing (it is more like a jig) in various places around the world. In my opinion, it is really something that you should not miss. Maybe it will inspire you to get out and be silly more.

There are thousands or more of these videos online at any given moment, but these are among the few that stick out from the rest. They may be the best of the pointless, but that is the society we live in. We now find comedy and inspiration from random videos that random people post on line. The best part is that these random people are now famous because of their viral videos.
